Yasiin Bey has travelled to Africa for a very special performance that pays tribute to Muhammad Ali, who turns 72 years old today. Yasiin Bey is honoring the legendary boxer and his legacy by performing three brand new songs inspired by "The Greatest" at an undisclosed location in Africa. The show is put together in association with Yasiin's new arts collective, A Country Called Earth.
